Not at all what I expected, both in a good way and bad. I didn’t see the over two-hour run time coming. I honestly thought during the introduction that I had wandered into the wrong theater showing a completely different movie.
Once things get rolling, expect something between “Paranormal Activity” and “Midsommar.”
What is advertised as your run of the mill horror-thriller that fills the month of October every year wanders into thinkpiece territory. It ends either on a brilliant note or with its head securely up its ass, depending on how you follow the first 95% of the film. Part of me feels like they never fully decided which direction they wanted to develop, thus ending up with pieces of 2-3 good movies cobbled together as one.
